Good re-read. I had some trouble today on 87 South after alma exit. I was lanesharing in the #1 lane and almost all the cars moved to the left part of the lane so I could pass safely which I would have liked to wave back to all of them, but thats not feasible.

Anyways, almost in sucession a decked out civic and an escalade were taunting me in that they moved left, but just as I came up, they moved to the right forcing me to "split" i.e. riding on the botts dots. I realize there are assholes always out there, but I wondered about it later, what if they moved to right suddenly and I got hit, would I be at fault? I read this thread and my questions were answered.

Appreciate the info MM4L and others.

I have a question regarding lane sharing on onramps.

In the original post, it's stated that you can split right up to the front if the onramp is 2 lanes or more. However, what if there's only one lane and a shoulder? If I share the lane in this case, would that mean I was sharing the one lane, or could it be viewed as driving/riding on the shoulder?

If there is a white line on the right or a yellow line on the left, those are called fog lines and if you cross them, you can be cited for driving/riding on the shoulder. If you are truly sharing the lane, you and the other vehicle will be entirely within the one lane.

No, the speeds are unsafe, among other things.

so is there a law that cagers do not have to "share" their lane with bikers? how about if they share in the beginning and decides not to share? what rights do bikers have if they are sharing a lane and the cager and the biker get into an accident?

personally, i think that straddling the center line is a whole lot safer than sharing a lane with a car. at least you get more cushion and if anything happens you can either move to the left or to the right.

so is straddling the line to pass up a car legal?

maybe s/he was (also) a 'bike-bin' (motorcycle/scooter courier service driver/rider) they seem quite aggressive around tokyo, due to delivery time expectations and such.

I have a question on red-light sharing

If theres is 3 lanes.

1 to turn left
1 to go left or straight
1 to go straight


They all have a solid white line... is it illegal to split since of the solid?

I do it all the time in such lane configurations. Cops don't really care and just let it go. If it is illegal, then cops give it a very low priority.

If you can share any ONE lane without crossing the line it’s legal. If you cross the line (LOL) then you can be cited (legally) but probably not if done safely and at a safe speed.

I couldn't tell if it was covered or not in here, so I figured I'd ask. If you're riding on a road (2 lanes in each direction), and there's a red light; what's the law on going in between cars to the front limit line?

Question

Is it OK to use hand signals instead of your blinkers when moving between lanes. I often find this easier than using the blinkers.
